Partnering with Plan Sponsors
Who Want a Conflict-Free Financial Advisor In Their Corner
Your 401(k) plan may be among the most important benefits your employees receive, but it can often be a complex area to navigate. In a tightly regulated and increasingly litigious environment, you want to get this one right—both for you as a plan fiduciary and for your employees as plan participants. We’re here to help.
What We Do For You
Shoreline brings the seasoned experience to know what works and what doesn’t. Through responsible investment selections and a prudent process, working with a conflict-free advisor like us means only your best interests lead the way.
Investment Selection Management
As a plan sponsor, you’re considered a fiduciary of your plan and are held to the same standard as a trained advisor. We relieve you of this responsibility by acting as a liaison between you and an investment firm that will serve as a 3(38) investment manager to select and monitor your plan’s investments. We’ll oversee their work, completing a yearly fiduciary process to see that they’re fulfilling their responsibilities—so that you are fulfilling yours.
Plan Design and Compliance
Given that your business’s needs are regularly evolving and IRS rules are ever-changing, we remain attuned to your goals and help adjust your plan whenever necessary. Shoreline works with your plan’s administrator to monitor all filing, testing and meeting of disclosure deadlines.
Record Keeping and Trust Services
A critical part of successful 401(k) management is high-quality record keeping of everything from payroll to trading and distributions. For this reason, we only partner with independent, vetted industry leaders that meet our criteria for transparent and conflict-free due diligence.
Dedicated to Being Your Partner
As a fellow business, we know that your success lies in the details of good bookkeeping, prudent legal precautions—and most importantly? Placing people at the core.
We’re committed to helping you create the benefits structure that not only meets your business’s needs but that supports your team’s future. And we’ll be here along the way to provide ongoing guidance for both you and your hardworking employees.
